Making a difference for children in the poorest countries
In describing the effect GAVI’s support has had on child and maternal health and improved health systems in the poorest nations, Newsweek called the GAVI Alliance "a transformer." Its cover story on "Giving Globally" commended GAVI for being "market savvy" and "getting results fast."
"GAVI is the great new blueprint for how international problems of poverty and disease are going to be tackled."
– Matthew Bishop, The Economist
GAVI's support is guided by these principles:
- Address needs countries identify and set priorities in harmony with other programs and funding
- Target countries and regions with the greatest need and the most room for improvement
- Scale up quickly through simple and cost-effective practices
- Tie funding to performance
- Increase predictability and reduce program costs
- Support program results that are monitored and evaluated to ensure accountability
- Promote sustainability
